yuletide recs round 4, 5? something like that.  
When it's late, my subject lines get ever more pointless.

Just Between Us -- AbFab. Very funny, with the shape, feel, and texture of canon.

Seven Habits of Highly Effective Sex Poodles -- BtVS. Adorable, sweet, makes-me-happy Xander/Anya. I feel like I've seen this title before--like, quite a while ago--but I don't remember reading the story. Also, I could simply be on crack.

Artificial Devotion -- Galaxy Quest. nestra recced this and I actually had to have her explain the premise to me, which is a somewhat embarrassing admission, but once I got it, I thought this was clever and great. (And, of course, I could in turn explain it to anyone who asks, but somehow I don't think that'll be necessary.)

The "Sex Poodles" is by doyle_sb4 and is, I think, in the BBF archive. :}

So I wasn't crazy! Thanks. But I thought all these stories were written fresh for the seasonal challenge...?

Neither crazy nor crackaddled: Yay!

I'm not sure how you're searching the archive, but you might be pulling up stories from last year's challenge?

Huh--interesting. I'd thought I'd just done a totally general quicksearch that would give me current listings, but I do see that there are some links to 2003 stories. Now I am confused. But oh well--I can hope that there are a few people who hadn't read the story (like, um, me) who will enjoy. *g*

The search engine's been giving me results from last year's challenge, too. I remember really digging that BtVS story last year -- it's one of the ones I saved to my hard drive...

Maybe the author posted it to BBF after the yuletide reveal?

Can I rec a fic to you? I don't know if you are familiar with the show Once a Thief (Nick Lea--Krycek--was one of the leads) but if you are you will love Happily Ever After (to read comments go here). It's brilliant.

I *do* know it--mostly from vids, as a "friend of a friend's" kind of fandom, but hey--I will go read it! :>) Thank you!

I just finished reading this--great rec!

"Nothing!" Mac looked up and casually examined the ceiling. "It's just. Now I have to tell you something else about the cookies."

Vic raised his eyebrows and waited.

Mac smiled brightly. "I didn't actually eat any."


"I never thought I'd say this to another man, Vic, but I'm really, really glad you ate the poisoned sex cookies."

I actually made a dog-like barking sound as I laughed. Ahem.

Ah, I'm so glad you liked it.:-) I haven't even seen all episodes, myself, yet, but I thought this fic was perfect in terms of character voices, bizarreness (humour, plot, 'messed up' chronology of events) and slashiness. OaT is probably the slashiest show I have ever seen but it's so difficult to find good Mac/Vic fic.

I just wish I knew more about the other Yuletide fandoms. There seem to be many good stories.

Anyway, I'm glad you liked this one.:-)
